International Civil Aviation Day:  Here is everything that you need to know about ‘International Civil Aviation Day’

History of International Civil Aviation Day:

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) first observed International Civil Aviation Day on December 7, 1994, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Chicago Convention. Since that time, this day has been honored every year on a global scale. Later, in 1996, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 7 December to be International Civil Aviation Day.

The aim of Civil Aviation Day is to recognize those who work in the aviation industry and to consider the value of world aviation networks. The UN is currently concentrating on making the aviation sector more sustainable to achieve the goals of Agenda 2030.

Significance of International Civil Aviation Day:

International Civil Aviation Day is celebrated to honor the civil aviation employees and air traffic control officers that maintain the skies and runways safe for our use while traveling. The day also serves as a reminder of the value of international civil aviation as a form of interconnectivity on a global scale. The ICAO views international travel as a crucial aspect of world peace and prosperity. It has effectively developed the best standards and procedures over the years in order to ensure aviation safety, security, inspection, regularity, environmental protection, and sustainable development.

The theme of International Civil Aviation Day:

The theme for International Civil Aviation Day 2022 is, ‘Advancing Innovation for Global Aviation Development’. The theme will remain the same until the year 2023.

Every five years, coinciding with ICAO anniversaries, the ICAO Council establishes a special anniversary theme for International Civil Aviation Day. Between these anniversary years, Council representatives select a single theme for the full four-year intervening period.
